Starmount Presbyterian Church is a wonderful extension of my family - they are truly supportive of my call as Christian, pastor, wife, mother, and friend. I am blessed to work and serve a congregation that challenges me to continue to grow in my faith in Jesus Christ and serve Him through mission and ministry.
